Using OCI? --> make sure you are on P3Dv4.4 or higher!
« on: December 04, 2019, 06:20:26 PM »
We had some support topics lately, reporting invisble models etc.

The reason usually was the P3Dv4 version used was not up-to-date.
OCI installs models using PBR technology which was introduced in Prepare 3D v4.4.
So please make sure you use Prepare 3D v4.4 or newer in order to have OCI installed flightplans work properly.

Which version of P3Dv4 do you use?

That's why. OCI is for 4.4 or higher. Reason is that PBR was added to P3Dv4 in 4.4, and almost all models in OCI uses PBR. So to fix this you have to upgrade to v4.5 which is the current v4 version.

The 737 is PBR now.

What model is the 787. The FSPX or UTT?

Are we sure already that AIG Traffic is compatible/won't be affected when updating from P3Dv4.5 hf#2 to hf#3?.
Thanks, Ed

Yes. There is absolutely nothing that changes the AI in HF3. Especuially because OCI is installed using the XML method. So everything will work just fine even after updating.

I installed OCI in HF2, updated to HF3 yesterday (installed the client only as it was the one they updated) and I still have the AI working just as expected. And I haven't touched anything regarding the xml installation nor in the OCI files.

Thanks Johan. Will update only the hf3 Client, updating the Content is not interesting to me as LM did not make any significant change there.
Cheers, Ed
